Subject: Eris in Civil Rights Events
HISTORY OF CIVIL RIGHTS THROUGH ERIS|
I believe that Eris has to do with civil rights,human rights,equal rights and standing up for self and for the things they believe inI also believe that Eris has to do with stirring stuff up. as well as challenging the status quo. . This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Some times, changes need to be made. Take for instance, the lack of civil rights. Civil rights leaders stirred stuff up. People who wanted things the way they were saw them as a great threat and believed that they were troublemakers and should be dealt with. Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving her seat up to a white man on a bus. That sparked civil rights movement. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. went to jail many times for breaking unfair Jim Crow laws that limited the rights of Blacks. He was even accused by some of being a communist.
Some people stir crap up to just get attention and publicity. That's what I think about football player,Terrell Owens. I know a guy that has Sun-Mercury-Eris in Aries in 8th oppose Pluto in 2nd ,and he likes to stir crap up in irc chat channels.. He is also a strong believer in equal rights too. He was misdiagnosed bipolar and believes that he has Aspergers Syndrome.
There is definitely been intense stuff activity in regards to gay marriage debate,the war in Iraq,terrorism,Al Quaeda,and President Bush's lousy leadership.
I think keywords for Eris can be stirring stuff up,equal rights issues,civil rights matters,controversy,riots,protests,demonstrations,boycotts,terrorism,ideologies
I suspected equal rights before Eris was even named. When it was nicknamed, Xena, I first got an impression that it could relate to equal rights issues. After all, Xena is the television character that is embraced by many in the gay community. The character has even been viewed as having a lesbian relationship with her sidekick, Gabrielle. In the show, Xena stands up selves and others,and she even stood up to the Gods which many would think to be crazy and arrogant. I read an astrologer who thought Xena was the gay planet which I don't agree with,but not so farfetched as I do feel that this body has to do with equal rights issues which gay people do have with the banning of gay marriage throughout every state in California except for Massachusetts.
I don't see Eris in a negative way. Like I said before, Eris can stir stuff up for good reasons like to point out things that are wrong as well as equal rights issues. However, those things can also be seen as wrong. After all, Eris can be about arguments that stem from thinking one's view is right and the other's view is wrong. This can be seen as prejudice which can end up as bigotry and racism. This is why fights occur. A lot of wars have been based on differing political and religious views. I even think the different views of political parties like the Democrats and Republicans and the war that they often have with each other fits with Eris too. This definitely fits with organized religions too. So many people think that their religion is right and other's religion is wrong. They believe that they are more moral than others,and it infringes on the rights of others. This has happened during the slavery days in USA as well as the days of Jim Crow Laws that Martin Luther King Jr fought to end,and even now with gays who are barred from marrying each other. Interracial marriages were banned in USA until the Supreme Court Loving ruling in 1967. This could eventually open the door to gay marriage being legal. What it all comes down to is that nobody will agree on everything. We all have minds of our own and different from each other in some ways. Diversity is a fact of life,and so compromise seems like a solution. We can even agree to disagree.
